Instead of even being able to touch the food before choosing it, it should be on its own little tray and get pushed off the conveyor mechanically when you wave your hand over a sensor.

A nifty idea, though it'd require more manpower (for creating the individual servings) and potentially more waste as that food would have to be removed faster. Not that the conveyer is practical in the first place...

I have an idea, it's called: PET COSPLAY CONVENTION

Consider this dating app/site system:
Anyone with a profile can choose to add anyone else with a profile to a list of those they'd consider dating.
This list is kept entirely secret, so you normally can't tell who else added who or even looked. However, if you add someone who already added you, you're publicly declared a match. This way people who are super shy about asking people out can attempt to hook up without worrying about what happens if they get rejected, since if it isn't reciprocated the other person won't even know they were interested.

As an option, one can choose to set their profile as enforcing monogamy. What this does is prevent them from adding or being added by anyone already in a relationship. Also, when they get do get matched up with someone, both their lists are deleted and no one else can match up with them. This helps keep you match from trying to get at the list of other people you were considering, which also making it so people who just add anyone and go on a bunch of failed relationships have to put more work re-adding people than those who only list a handful of crushes.

Might make the monogamy part mandatory, and/or make it a phone app where you pay twenty five to fifty cents per addition to your list to make it a huge cash cow. Not sure if I'd want to partner with another system for suggesting people to add, I'm thinking a phone app where you're expected to add people you already know would work well enough.

I don't know if I want to tell about bad laws they could be making if they hadn't thought of them yet, though if the idea of them is already public sure.

Neat glove.


Negotiator-bodyguard teams for dealing with peaceful situations, such as non-riot protests.
Police, when handling such situations, need to balance respecting the crowd's rights both with enforcing the law and protecting themselves/each other. In addition, they're generally trained more to deal with suspected criminals than with people who happen to be in a situation that might lead to crime occurring in the near future. This is stressful and a conflict of interest.

Instead, for peaceful situations you could have negotiators who are there just to talk to people without using any force, and bodyguards who just protect those negotiators without trying to enforce anything. The negotiators focus on controlling the crowd with their words and gestures, guiding them to a solution that maintains peace and and keeps the city functional. The bodyguards, being responsible only for keeping the negotiators out of harm's way, would hopefully be less panicky than enforcers simply due to having to deal with less.

Then police would only be called in if things go bad without somebody getting too scared and firing at the crowd when it could have been avoided. Plus, protestors might not even act as problematically if they know they aren't being faced with actual enforcers, just from negotiators being a less sever escalation of confrontation.

How about a first-person shooter style game where you are a rebel (in some country, I don't care which) fighting in a group and have the gameplay similar to other FPS games like CoD and Battlefield campaigns, but instead of having everything simplified like 'hold [x] to create a simple explosive', you have to create it manually step by step, choosing quantities of reactants and setting the trigger on your own, and THE GAME DOESN'T JUST TELL YOU HOW. That's right, you have to learn how to do it properly (or trial and error hard) to create a working explosive, and then use this knowledge later on to improvise your own. It could have a 'tutorial' where early on, other members of your group show you how to do stuff which you have to replicate.
Instead of 'hold [x] to reload', you have to figure out how to reload different guns (maybe a quick up-down on the d-pad to pull back and forth the bolt or to pump a shotgun, with 'x' to to insert a shell or magazine). Essentially, the game will try and reduce all the automated actions and replace them with something a little more difficult and more interactive.

Imagine a long series of declines, short enough to step onto easily, and stretching out far enough that it's not too hard to balance on it with rollerskates. Now two of them in the same direction, staggered so you can lift one rollerskate for the next decline while the other is still rolling. Then another pair of the same going in the other direction. You now have a roller-trail for traveling across fairly level areas where all you have to do is lift your feet and let gravity pull you along. Rollerskates are compact and require minimal maintenance.

Crop circle substitute array: First, see if we can use magnetrons to bend crops similarly to how they are bent by those who claim there are non-manmade crop circles which are distinguished by being bent via microwave energy rather than mechanical pressure.

Once that's working, use the same technique as a substitute signal to develop a device that responds in a particular way to the signals which purportedly cause crop circle formation. Particularly, it should be able to then be reset to its original position on command, or after a short time.

Then put them in an array with a method of recording this signal reliably. Now we have a field that's responsive to crop-circle forming signals, but which can be written and re-written on repeatedly.This would allow us to see what order and speed the signal spreads across the array, and potentially more signals to be received in a small area and amount of time.

If noticed by those sending it, invention of a purpose-built circle array could also convey to them that we've uncovered more about the nature of the signal without sending a particular message to them beyond that.

If ISIS/ISIL/etc. pretty much get munitions by stealing Kurd/Iraq/US weapons, then why not attach remote-detonated explosives to all large weapons? Not only will it destroy the weapon so that it can't be used by ISIS, but it may also kill the group that tries to seize it. At about $15-30 for a decent explosion (apparently 500g of C-4 is $15) I think it's a worthy investment.

So if a team around a something are killed or forced to retreat, ISIS don't gain weaponry and they may loose manpower. Win. (if the explosive can't be attached to the weapon's base for safety reasons, just bury the charge below the weapon site like a mine)

That's immediately what I thought when I read it, too. It would take some serious quality control, and you definitely wouldn't be able to use broken down cars or junk metal due to the risk of getting hurt by something rusted.

Really, I think it would be better to go for a more psychological approach. Take some cheap office furniture, like a cubicle desk, charge people a fair amount and let them go nuts. Hate your house for whatever reason (life or family issues), get to smash something that resembles your room in the house, or the entire house if your willing to shell out the dosh.

For bigger projects you could demand a pay advancement if you have to prepare anything before they can smash.

Model it out of places that people hate, and let them smash it up. Also have some random crap for people to destroy, if they don't want anything specific.

That's true, though if each decline was preceded by an incline, you would at worst get ramped into the air a bit instead of getting tripped right away, which isn't as bad. I'm thinking a ratio of three down to two up would work pretty well.

Thinking about it further, I'm guessing you could also have a track where each side is sloped toward the middle slightly, so you could step outward and roll in. This would also be a problem if it was too steep, but if combined with the steps could allow both to be made shallower.


Another idea: Something like http://www.thedrinkexchange.com/index.html but for art commission slots.

You know what would be nice? A website made to give you a sense of proportion, like a calculator.
42 billion. That's a big number. You know what 42 billion people looks like? I bet you don't. I sure as hell don't see it.
Let's try a million men. I can't picture it. How about a thousand? Still kinda hard for me. Hopefully you get my point. Large numbers by themselves are incomprehensible and therefore meaningless to an average person (except in mathematics, of course).

I propose a website with an interactive player that has input boxes that a person can type a number/value into, with a list next to it for units if necessary. The user can also opt to use objects as a unit, either by selecting from a list of models or uploading their own graphic to use.
When submitted, the site will generate a series of visual aids which the user can switch between, such as a 3D array the user can navigate, and various comparisons to well-known things of a similar magnitude.

1) a skull is the best I can think of. Yes, it may not work with non-human life who do not instinctually recognise it, but what's the alternative? Maybe an drawing of a broken atom? That could work (but again relies on knowledge of atoms)
2) what is the big deal if a few explorers die in a highly irradiated area? Like, all life has value and all that, but hundreds of things die every second. Explorers are especially prone to dying. Aliens/humans shouldn't be that shocked.

Money (almost the world over) is merely a representation of agreed value. Whether it's backed by a commodity or not does not matter; paper money is still a representation of value, just physical value for a backed currency and imaginary value for a fiat currency.

Given this, assume the following scenario: A person removes $100 from their checking account as a single bill, then lights it on fire to destroy the note. This action was heavily recorded and irrefutable, so that no reasonable person would disagree on what happened to the bill. What, then, would stop the bank from simply adding $100 back to the person's account (perhaps less the cost of printing one $100 note)? If there is a law about this specific situation, why have it? No actual value was destroyed, merely the current representation of the value. If someone lights a picture of me on fire, the picture is destroyed, but I am still here.

Coin money is a bit different, because some coins do contain valuable metal (though not always to the value of the coin itself.)

I disagree. I believe that paper(etc.) currency DOES have value beside its physical value. If you are outside a shop with no money at all, no bank account or cash, and we disregard your other belongings so you cannot do non-monetary trade, you cannot buy anything. To a shopkeeper, you have no value. However, if I give you a briefcase full of $100 bills, you can now buy things with those bills. While they don't have useful physical value (paper bills probably cost cents to print), they have serious trade value. The shopkeeper wants them so that he can trade them for other stuff. They are valuable to him.

Consider the reverse of your situation: the government mint prints off a fresh batch of $100 bills for you. There is irrefutable proof, etc., and once they give you the cash, you try and convert them to credit in your bank account. Why should they accept them, if they are only representations of value?

If cash was meaningless, then it would be useless.

Again, the scenario assumes it's 100% proven. The question isn't if the person could fake it, but what reasonable objection there would be against the bank just putting $100 back into the person's account.

I would never expect this to happen in real life, primarily because the destruction could still be faked in a number of ways. It's a thought experiment rather than a legal inquiry.

>401197
>no bank account or cash, and we disregard your other belongings so you cannot do non-monetary trade, you cannot buy anything
Only because you lack proof of sufficient funds and an agreement to transmit some of those funds at a later time. This is how a Credit Card works: You don't actually have anything of value you on, but the Credit Card (to a lesser extent, a Debit Card) is like an automatic IOU. The register will check with the card provider to make sure the buyer has funds, and then gives the person their purchase. Only later in the day (or, in some cases, many days) is the money actually transferred from your account to the store's. Checks are the same, but less dependable. Stores that go to remote areas or are mobile often have to store CC data and transmit it at a later time

>If cash was meaningless, then it would be useless.
Cash has meaning, and that meaning is giving physical form to imaginary value. Specifically, a value that our society collectively agrees upon, but is no less imaginary. This is easily shown by things such as credit cards: most places will accept that imaginary value despite the lack of cash. In a normal transaction you, the seller, and your bank/CC company all agree that a) you have money and b) you want to give some of money to the seller.

>Why should they accept them, if they are only representations of value?
Because by accepting them, the bank also accepts the value they represent. When you remove money in the form of cash, the bank and you agree that the cash represents the value removed from the bank account. My argument is that if the cash is provably destroyed, the value is represents still exists and could be credited back to the account.

In that scenario, the point was that you had no funds. To buy would be to go into debt; to owe value you do not have.

>My argument is that if the cash is provably destroyed, the value is represents still exists and could be credited back to the account.
Where does the value exist? You took the value out of the account to represent it as cash.
If I have cash and give it to someone else, why should I not be refunded? According to my interpretation of your argument, you could say I no longer possess the representation of my value, and therefore it would be reasonable to refund me. I say that by dispossessing cash (via destruction or transmission) you dispossess the value it represents.

When you get a one hundred dollar bill, you are not holding an indicator that you own one hundred dollars, you are holding an object worth one hundred dollars. The decision that it was worth one hundred dollars was by an imaginary system, yes, but that's what it is. If the bank were to give you one hundred dollars of bread and you ate it, they wouldn't give you a refund either.

So here's one that came from a dream I had last night. A reality TV show about a group of people locked in a giant room that's like a big convenience store, but with ovens and microwaves and stuff, and it's packed from wall to wall with packaged food products. They're given a list of food in that "store" they have to eat before they're let out. It's all real food, but the catch is they can't tell what brand any of it is. It can be anything from generic store-bought brands to shit from other countries.

Ultimately, the government subsidizing research and creative endeavors would be the result of a universal basic income.

Those two actions combined would create a nation with an unparalleled level of creativity and innovation.

A town where kids are banned. Mostly as a refuge for pedophiles, either those who think they might act on their urges or who were caught and eventually released from prison but not a prison itself as anyone older than 18 can move there as well. Being caught with a kid, regardless of relation (not even someone's own children are allowed) would result in instant ejection from the town. Maybe one larger city for the country, maybe one medium-sized town per state. It would specialize in sex therapists.

Ideally it's set up as just an option for those convicted, and not a requirement, but if such a town existed I can easily see many states making it a requirement for convicted pedophiles to move to this town.

I would expect that people who want to avoid children entirely would go. They are likely to be the reason such a city would survive long-term. There would be some who's dislike is powerful enough to overcome the stigma, and a Pedo Town would still need a lot of non-pedophiles to be a workable city.

There probably would have to be a lot of work to overcome the stigma, yeah; at least enough that people realize that simply being a pedophile does not mean someone has abused children or is a horrible monster.

Well yeah, are you saying adults can't enjoy unstructured outdoor activities? To think only children can exercise without buiding a set of rigid rules around their acitivy, to me, suggests that the adults are their mental inferiors. Of course, it'd probably get styled as an outdoor extreme sports center, but the idea is similar.

Also, have you seen what kind of arbitrary novelty rooms get made in Japanese love hotels?

There's prety much no way a city with no kids isn't going to have people using it as an excuse to be more lax about sexuality in general, just because it's not like there's going to be any kids around to see it. Unless there's another city that's already better known for it, anyway.

People forget, but the old line "Eye for an Eye" was an admonishment against "justice" consisting of taking more from your attacker than they took from you. It's part of why Hammurabi's Code was considered an incredible stride forward in the rule of law and the why Babylonian civilization gave rise to all civilizations that came later--it prevented ever-growing cycles of retribution.

Even though it's difficult to draw a line somewhere, if someone sleeps with my girlfriend, or I catch someone trying to molest my child, I SHOULD be allowed to deck them multiple times in the face. In those situations, I am very well-justified in my anger and the other person shouldn't be allowed to file assault charges against me. I'm not exactly trying to encourage violence, but it pisses me off how no matter what stupid thing they did, people can still file assault and battery against you for giving them what they deserve.

No, you shouldn't. Police brutality is bad enough--empowering ordinary citizens to mete out their own ideas of justice through violence would turn civilization into a madhouse. We need to increase accountability, not make it more difficult. You are allowed to employ the bare minimum level of violence necessary to defend yourself / your children / others under your protection from harm, but retribution is neither your responsibility nor your right, and society is worsened if it becomes so. The fact that you get a visceral thrill out of the idea of doing violence to those who offend you doesn't make it beneficial to society.

You demonstrate this well enough by comparing "someone sleeps with my girlfriend" to "someone tries to molest my child." If someone sleeps with your girlfriend and she's fine with it, you are in no way owed any sort of recompense. You are perfectly justified in breaking up with her, but the person who slept with her did not betray you, and in no way owes you anything, including an apology. You were not part of that transaction. You feel hurt because your girlfriend was either unsatisfied by you or didn't care enough about your feelings to remain faithful--and you have every right to feel hurt by that. But the only reason you think you're owed a chance to punch the guy she cheated on you with is because you want to feel like more of a man by punching the guy she decided was more important than her monogamy with you. And that's retarded.

Gift cards that are worth slightly more than they cost to purchase.

It's normally better to give a person straight-up cash than a gift card as a gift card is equal in monetary value but restrictive as well, but if a person buys a cheaper-than-listed-value gift card to ensure better value for money, it guarantees the recipient will buy items at that store, with only marginal impact on store profits. Also, you can't buy gift cards using those gift cards.

Here's a crazy idea I don't even subscribe to.

There is a theory that time is discrete (ie. there is a quantum unit of time ["chronon"] that is indivisible; there is no smaller amount of time). Assuming this is true and matter is also discrete, if you have an object go toward another object at a high enough speed (more than the object's width per chronon), it will never collide as there is never a viable frame of time in which the objects are colliding. Like in video games, when an object is going so fast compared to the frame rate so that the code never detects a collision on any given frame.

TL;DR if time isn't continuous, you can make any objects go through one another if you make them go fast enough.

Thinking of how regenerative braking sytems work in the context of braking to avoid excessive speed when going downhill and using the stored energy to avid losing speed while going uphill, I considered that a similar afect could be acheived by a vehichle which uses a tall mast which raises and lowers a heavy weight according to the vehichle's altitude such that the altitude of the vehichle's center of gravity stays at the same while the vehichle goes up and down hills. Or I suppose it could still simply regulate speed directly instead of trying to measure altitude?

That's called Balderdash. It's a board game. One of my favorites, actually. Though it's also got a bit where you try to bluff the other players into thinking your definition is correct, if you don't know the definition.

While flossing, I was thinking of a premise for a story, involving normal life but with a strange and unusual element (a premise that so often works). My premise was a man who's dick was a cactus. What would his sex life be like?

And the solution came quicker than I expected: he would eventually become the world's most cunning linguist. The end.

So, my story will be exactly 1 paragraph long.

An animated short about a male and female pair of post-apocalyptic survivors set to Sheryl Crow 's Soak Up The Sun. "Soaking up the Sun" is a euphemism for the grow lamp that the survivor pair have and the short amount of time the Sun appears from behind the clouds that Earth are constantly covered in. And what the term "lighten up" is referring for the survivors using a flamethrower to kill the mutants. It ends with the male survivor finally succumbing and becoming a mutant. The female survivor shoots him in his head with her "45" caliber 1911. The song ends, and then for 10 seconds of no music and the female crying.

Seeing that, in its frozen state, ice cream is far too thick to spray, I think the best way to handle this would be to mix the ice cream with liquid nitrogen as it's being dispenses so that it freezes mid-air after already being in the form of droplets.

How about a Noah's Deathmatch thing where we get like two or ten or a hundred of each species (or at least each species larger than an insect), put them in the same environment and see which ones become extinct last.

Ok, it's completely unethical, but it would be interesting to see which species' would win. I reckon a bear or alligator would be top, but rabbits may be able to repopulate faster than their death rate.
In fact, it's possible that, so long as there is grass, a valid food chain could survive indefinitely.

One also wonders--if someone comes out to their conservative parents as trans, would the fact that they're also gay (which is to say, attracted to people of the same gender which they've transitioned to) make things worse or better in the conservative parent's mind?

Like would the parent see it as just being straight but "pretending" to be the "wrong" gender? Or would they see it as their child going from being comfortably cishet to being a double-whammy of queerness?

Not really, you can just make the cost of living so high that nobody can afford children. It won't be "strictly forbidden" to have children, but childbirth will be low enough to pose a serious demographic issue, so immigration is seen as a necessity. See: Japan, Europe.

USA isn't affected because their people are already dumb enough that they don't care about silly things like whether they can afford children or not.
